Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I found this little guy in our guest bedroom. I’ve never seen one of these before and I can’t seem to find conclusive information anywhere. It’s just under 1cm long and is black with a grey line on its back. I’m wondering if it might be a False Black Widow.

Based on your photo and description, that seems reasonable. However, do be aware that juvenile and male black widows can and do have white markings as well as red. Without seeing the ventral side, I couldn’t be sure.
